Google Maps Adds Live Transit Info For Certain U.S. Cities

phone_shell_vertical

Starting today, Google Map’s users in certain cities can check real-time public transit information. So far, only riders in New York City, Salt Lake City, and Washington D.C. get to see live service updates for their respective subways/transit systems, but more will come.

With this addition, there are no more excuses why you missed that bus or train. Go check it out.

    In London (UK) it is quite amazing to be told I’ve just got on a particular ‘bus; then see the highlight making it’s way down the route listing before telling me to get off and then knowing that I have got off.

    Yeah Salt Lake City! Woo! I was thinking there’s no way that I’ll be one of the cities chosen…But then again SLC was one of the cities where they starting the testing for ISIS. Not sure why, as there are plenty of other, larger cities. But I’m not complaining :)

    I was in DC last week and this would of been awesome! Although, the feature that is in use now worked great for me! Google maps is a must while in a major city with a metro!

    I don’t know how useful it will be for DC – that alert for the Red Line should just stay permanent…

  • Doug Wing

    Salt Lake City??? WTF

    • socalrailroader

      Yeah, they have a great transit system, train, light rail and bus, maybe if you got out more of wherever it is you live you might learn something new ;)

      Boston can’t keep track of certain MBTA lines. I wouldn’t hold my breath

      Unnecessary. You can always assume the T will suck and give yourself extra time.
